The truth is a lemon meringue!
I have yet to offer the game for play let alone get it on the table because of what I perceive as the still-open questions and gameplay balance. It'd be nice to know it can be played without running across what I remember as being 'fatal errors'.
Alas I am in the same situation. Kickstarted. Received. Watched videos. Read rules and forums posts. Gave up trying to figure out what was the right way to play it to avoid issues - I don't want to start a game with my friends to find I can't answer questions they come up with. Still unplayed
